Islamic Flag to fly over the White House



The final phrase uttered by British Jihadist Anjem Choudrey in this recent clip was the one which caught international attention, where he stated that the Islamic flag would be raised above the White House. However it was his first comment that grabbed my attention the most. "Islam has the solutions to all of the problems that man kind faces" is how he opened his rant. What a perfect indication of how mad and dangerous some of these people are. The pursuit of perfection is something that links all the great tyrannies of history together whether they be fascist, communist or religious fanatics. Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Khomenini all had that in common. They all knew how to make the world perfect and how to solve all our problems, even our personal ones. In my opinion only the free societies, as practised in the western liberal democracy, allow people to live their own lives and make their own mistakes as it should be. It is not always easy, in fact it is sometimes more difficult, but it is living in a free country.


Choudrey also follows the classic line that 9/11 was a response to American attacks. In other words, the 1998 bombing of Sudan and Afghanistan angered Muslims so much that they had to respond. Just like the London bombings were a response to Iraq, and the Bali bombings a response to Afghanistan. This is nonsense, and any westerner who believes this fundamentally misunderstands the motives of those carrying out these attacks. As I have said many times before on Gubu World fundamentalist Islamic terrorists would not stop attacking the west if foreign troops pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan, nor would they do so if Israel withdrew from Palestine, nor would they do so if Israel was dismantled altogether, nor would they do so if we gave them back Andalusia. They will only do so when the Islamic flag flies over Downing Street, Dail Eireann and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Ted,
There is a lot of truth in what you have said. The world has never had a shortage of people who thought to control everything for the greater good taking away freedom in the name of equality. It never ends well. In the end they must always be confronted -usually at a high price.
In my opinion there is a terrible underlying truth to all of this. Here in America we had another "American of Irish descent" who gave a fiery speech calling his fellow Virginians to fight the British during our revolution. His name was Patrick Henry and he asked: "Is life so dear or peace so sweet that they are to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?" -We Americans answered "No" but the cold truth is that for most of the world people seem to often say "Yes" and prefer chains to violent confrontation until circumstances finally become intolerable. - We see this all the time. The Iraqis put up with Saddam for 30 years and would still be under him if they had been left to their own course. The fact is that there are not many people like the Americans or the Irish that love freedom so well they are willing to fight and die for it -but, in the end, that is what it always comes to.

This is something I have thought a lot about. There are over 200 countries in the world, only about 70 are democratic. Why are non democratic systems so plentiful. The answer is that in many cases the people embrace them. It takes courage to want to be free and to want to live in a free country, it means you are prepared to take control of your own destiny.

Ireland and America are two nations that have such courage.

This is a debate I used to often have when I was living in Dubai. Many Expats living there used to argue that low taxes and zero conventional crime meant that life was better in the UAE than at home in Britain or Ireland. This used to anger me. I for one prefer to live in a free and democratic country, rather than a dictatorial one that provides easy answers.

I agree entirely, although the tyranny of political correctness is one form of western misuse of power.

Paul,
Unfortunately, I think you are right about Muslims being unable, culturally, to have open examinations or discussions on a scale needed to make a change. Individually, there are many who are capable and even willing (many who have become "westernized") but not nearly enough and the peer pressure is intense -and dangerous.
Does that mean we are all saying that ultimately conflict on a massive scale is inevitable? Yes, I am afraid that is what is sounds like.
As for your phrase "the tyranny of political correctness" being a form of misuse of power- I think you are exactly right and that is something we will have to deal with -and the sooner the better.

The Tyranny of political correctness is an excellent phrase. I have become aware in recent time (since I got access to US cable news) that it is as big a problem in the US as here. Thank God for the blogosphere.

The speaker is Abdul Karim Hattin, creator of the documentary “From the Shadows…Exposing the New World Order” and is notorious for regurgitating Nazi ideas with an Islamic gloss. He is prone to attacking Salafis and homosexuals, having made a PowerPoint presentation in an East London Mosque called “Spot The Fag”, which is, in his words, a “game I like to play”.
